This will shock most of you. I like Lindsey Graham. Always have for that matter. He’s always been very pleasant to me. We’ve shared a few common fights. And I respect that he is not as willing as some of his colleagues to shift his positions on all things merely for the sake of re-election. But I disagree with Lindsey Graham on immigration. I disagree | Read More »
The Donald Sterling Precedent
I hope you will read this op-ed by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. He’s absolutely right. Donald Sterling is a terrible person. But we have known that for a long time. He has been sued repeatedly for race based discrimination. He has had to settle those cases. He is married and taking his mistress to games, which too many people find acceptable. But what’s more, it is pretty | Read More »
The White House’s Calculated Lie On The Benghazi Fiasco
In the aftermath of the sacking of our Benghazi consulate and the slaughter of our ambassador, National Security Advisor Susan Rice was sent out to the various Sunday morning talk shows to deny that terrorism as the cause. Rather, she claimed, it was the result of an internet video that no one had seen. ABC’s “This Week”: But our current best assessment, based on | Read More »
Boehner’s Bootlickers Continued: The Ohio Opportunist vs. Matt Lynch
This is a continuation of our series highlighting members who represent the priorities of House Speaker John Boehner and leadership instead of conservatives. You can view the previous posts here: Part 1 , Part 2 Part 3 ,Part 4. Not surprisingly, Ohio is filled with GOP members who serve as Boehner bootlickers, due to his presence in the state’s delegation. Conservatives have a lot of | Read More »
Message To Duke University: Man Up
One of the hallmarks of the left is its never ending battle to control language and to use that control as a cudgel on its opponents. Examples abound. “Choice.” (Really? The baby chose to be aborted?) “Marriage equality.” “Homophobia.” The ever popular “Diversity” which consists of constructing the correct palette of skin colors without regard to the socio-economic status of the group. And, of course, | Read More »
WaPo uses the dread number ‘2006’ when discussing Barack Obama.
I know that the election is in six months, and six months is an eternity in politics – but so is *nine* months.

Candidate Interview: Bentley Rayburn CO CD-5
Yesterday afternoon I had the opportunity to sit down with retired Air Force Major General, and GOP primary candidate for Colorado’s 5th Congressional District, Bentley Rayburn. In an interview in Rayburn’s relatively modest home north of Colorado Springs, we spoke about his background, world view, and why he is running for Congress.

Money and the Tea Party
From January 1, 2013, through March 31, 2014, the National Republican Senatorial Committee raised $49.6 million, but only gave $126,000.00 to candidate and other political committees. 71% of the money it spent went to its non-electioneering operations. That looks terrible. But it is not. For example, the NRSC has been paying former employees who are now outside consultants. Those outside consultants have worked to place | Read More »
What Are Public Schools Teaching YOUR Kids About Fracking?
This terrific and terrible video from Revealing Politics shows how the schools indoctrinate kids into their leftist political ideology. How fitting this demonstration of the effects of blatant propaganda takes place at Bureau of Land Management hearing. What an appropriate venue. When conservative talk about left wing propaganda being shoved down our kids throats, democrats and liberals protest, perhaps too much, and claim we’re being | Read More »
To Change America
Stories continue to trickle out about coming Republican betrayals. Once primaries are over, Republicans are going to push amnesty. Once primaries are over, Republicans are going to give up efforts to repeal Obamacare. They’ll tinker instead. The only way to change the direction of the country is to change the direction of the GOP. The only way to change the direction of the GOP is | Read More »
Coffee and Markets got it wrong on Net Neutrality
In Monday’s Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson really went off in favor of Net Neutrality, the policy that twice has been struck down by the courts as an illegal power grab by the FCC, and is being promoted a third time by the Obama FCC at the behest of the radical socialist wing of his party.
Francis Cianfrocca I thought put in a good effort trying to be even handed about the whole thing, but I wanted to respond to a message like that making it to the front page of RedState. I understand where both of them are coming from, and I think it’s important to explain why Net Neutrality really is a terrible idea.

The Future of Post-modern Racism Is the Rich, Liberal SWPL
The Eviction Bus of SF CA Cliven Bundy and Donald Sterling, Registered Democrat, both say the most outrageous things. Perhaps each man’s Paleo diet has set back his brain several decades. They’re old, ignorant, and make Archie Bunker look like a Rhodes Scholar. The punch-lines write themselves now that he stupid enough to throw the chum in the water. To sum | Read More »

Silencing the Christians
This past Thursday night, before flying to Des Moines for the Family Leader’s Senate Forum, I spoke to the Alliance Defending Freedom in north Atlanta. The Alliance is a Christian ministry that works with lawyers around the country to defend religious liberty. The Alliance has helped students in colleges where secularists have tried to stop Christian voices from being heard. The Alliance has helped doctors | Read More »
